Four years later -- RA: THE PATH OF THE SUN GOD was born. An animated masterpiece of surreal neon dreams, it quickly faded into obscurity upon its 1990 release. In 2019 - it returns.

More on True Creature:
Scoring Chapter I is True Creature, the solo project of Vancouver-based synth composer, Andrea Cowan-Cosmatos. With analog synthesizers, theremin, drum-machines and effects, True Creature cultivates an expanding tonal palette and composes conceptual pieces to pique the imagination. True Creature is currently hard at work readying her debut Holodeck release.
More on Curved Light:
Scoring Chapter II is Curved Light, the audio-visual project of synth composer Peter Tran. Curved Light compositions and performances move fluidly between styles and moods, and aim to absorb audiences in full sensory, cinematic experiences that explore the dualities of order and chaos, action and automation, permanence and the ephemeral. Since its inception, Curved Light has released numerous albums and played hundreds of shows with SURVIVE, Suzanne Ciani, Lower Dens, and Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith. Having previously featured on the Holodeck Vision One compilation, Curved Light is currently producing a follow-up to the 2017 Holodeck release, Channelview .
More on Majeure:
Scoring Chapter III is multi-instrumentalist A.E. Paterra as Majeure. Best known for his work as one half of the seminal NYC synth outfit Zombi , Paterra merges the dark Moog-driven film scores of Vangelis with the relentless drive of Can and the transcendent minimalism of Steve Reich and Philip Glass to create a staggering blend of electronic rhythms. In addition to his solo work, Paterra contributes his drumming talents to the band Grails and operates an independent tape label.

The creative method of Scottish filmmaker Lesley Keen combines traditional hand-drawn animation with computer-assisted techniques. Her films use the moving image to explore abstract concepts & non-narrative structures
